Who Does Belly End Up With In ‘TSITP’ TV Show?
Along with being the author of the original TSITP books, Jenny also serves as writer, producer and co-showrunner on the Prime Video series. Since the premiere of season 1 in June 2022, and then season 2 in July 2023, fans have noticed multiple changes in the show that differed from the original book series.
That being said, we assume she will remain loyal to her own books while choosing Belly’s endgame.
However, Gavin did tease to Us Weekly in June 2023 that the show might just switch up the endgame couples.
“I do feel like there’s a strong chance that that’s a possibility,” the actor shared, teasing Jeremiah’s future character arc.
“I try to keep it as real as possible in that regard. Obviously, I know where he ends up going and what ends up happening. But I don’t emphasize on that. Because I think [author and showrunner] Jenny [Han] writes it so well that I’m able to kind of get there naturally without having to force it a certain direction,” Gavin explained, referring to the plot of the original book series. “So, even though I know where he is going, I try to play it day by day because that’s all we can do. [We can] just live in the moment and make the most of our time right.”
